Pitch your tent at Waterclose Meadows.

Lose yourself in the tranquillity of the nearby riverside setting and take in the wonderful views along the river and meadow walks. For those who enjoy being more active you can launch your canoe or paddle board nearby and explore quiet back waters of the The River Great Ouse.

Wake up to the sound of bird song and the flowing river. Take a short stroll to the community village shop and don’t forget to try the wonderful scones from our Tea room baked using flour made at the Mill.

This hidden gem offers something for everyone.
